Ashton Kutcher talks possible baby "Hawkeye" on 'Conan'

Ashton Kutcher talks possible baby

"Now we're like, 'Maybe we don't love the name, ' even though we both love the name!" he laughed, "So, I think we have a name".

While Mila and Ashton have apparently already picked a name out for their unborn boy, the 38-year-old did reveal the name he REALLY wanted for his son, "Hawkeye".

The innocent gesture caused a rift between the married duo, who are just days away from welcoming a baby brother for daughter Wyatt, 2. Kutcher said. "You don't want names of people that remind you of people who used to beat you up".

Picking a baby name for your child can be challenging, especially when you're looking for that flawless fit.

Recently, Mila saved us all from a very dire fate: letting Ashton Kutcher name humans that will soon exist in the world.

After that it is largely a nervous waiting game for the rivals, who have spent several bitter months at each other's throats. The race is expected to come down to a handful of battleground states like Florida, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio.

But, apparently Mila shut down that baby name nearly immediately. "When we get in the naming process she hates every name I come up with".

Ashton appeared on Conan yesterday where he explained that he floated the name with his wife, owing to the fact that he was a huge University of Iowa die-hard (the "Hawkeyes" are the college's football team... or at least that's what Wikipedia tells us), as well as a M*A*S*H* fan. There's also Benjamin "Hawkeye" Pierce, the army doctor played by Alan Alda on M*A*S*H.

"It didn't cross the Mila threshold", he joked.

"The problem is, if you get the name too soon, there can be slight trepidation around the name", Kutcher said. After all, the name has to serve them well their whole life. "I think he's been waiting for this moment". The other day Mila asked me, "So, you still like the name?' And I was like, "Yeah!' And she's like, 'Why was it the high-pitched 'yeah"?"
